I'm too late for a refund. Can I re-sell my ticket?

If unexpected circumstance arise and you have to cancel your participation after the refund deadline you are allowed to resell your ticket for the original price or lower and transfer it to another person.

We reserve the right to cancel any ticket purchase made by any person or body whom we reasonably believe to be associated with any ticket broker or is re-selling tickets for commercial gain.

  • up to 15 days before the start of the event free of charge.
  • Less than 15 days before the start of the event we will charge 10% of the ticket value

You can request a ticket transfer by contacting us at info[at] The request must originate from the original buyers email and contain the new participants full name, age, address, zipcode, city and email.

What should I bring to the conference?

Some events will require, or give you the opportunity to actively participate in the activity so you will need something with which you can draw. We know this is a 'digital' art conference but there will also be events where the use of laptop might not be possible so be sure to bring some traditional gear with you.

Generally if you bring the following things you should be fine

  • A laptop that can run on battery for a few hours + drawing tablet
  • Sketchbook + pens/pencils/inks/...
  • An up to date portfolio (if you want your portfolio reviewed)
Will there be wi-fi during the conference?

At the moment No. The hostel does provide wi-fi for guests but it is not equipped to handle such large groups or our purposes. We are looking into other solutions but so far have found none that are realistic with our budget.

In what language will events be given?
Unless otherwise stated all events at the conference will be spoken in English.
